Unfortunately due to my new job I only got one training session in with them. Not much considering we had two whole weeks of training last year. Luckily their counselor Caitlin was with us for last years win and has been able to take over the reins. Regardless on how the demo goes, (dogs, kids and a huge crowd, what can go wrong??) the dogs will get lots of great exposure to a large group of spectators which will hopefully translate into interest and possible new homes.
This sweetie is Emma. In person she looks more foxhound than beagle. A walker hound perhaps? (OK I admit I don't know all of my hounds.)
The other contenders we had in mind were just to much energy for the kids to handle. Of course Ace was snatched up into a new home before we could claim him to do the demo with. However I do love to show off hounds for training since many people claim they are to stubborn to train. (which made winning with a hound that much sweeter last year)
Think good thoughts for us on Sunday. We can use all the help we can get!
